    I have been working at Gold Coast IT Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It can be controversial when it comes to compensation & benefits (they don't match 401k) but it's a fair deal for many of the employees here. I have been here for less than a year so in terms of compensation, I don't have much to say but hopefully, I will get a better raise. You get what you deserve, in my opinion. So I am not here to complain about it. Not a bad choice for freshers. If you are here to learn, they are here to help you, that includes mentors, HR team, marketing team and leadership. You will grow your knowledge here, connect with people, learn how to survive in the job market, etc. It's a good place to start your career.
    I do like the leadership here. Great people that you can learn from, not only for programming knowledge but also the positive energy and great attitudes towards one's career.
    Company's after work gathering (they call it 'happy hour') is great. You learn a lot from precursors and peer workers.

    Cons

    For many others, you might find a better offer somewhere else. So if you think you have a better deal, you don't have to come here, seriously. Think twice before you sign the contract.
    I would've rated 5 stars if we get higher pay, at least somewhere close to the industrial average.

    Advice to Management

    John is great. Mentors are good people too, although they can be less egotistical sometimes.

    Pros

    I tried but I cannot give any positive feedback for this devil

    Cons

    They will force you to sign a bad contract with them. you either stay will them for 2 years and receive 100 a WEEK salary(living in DC) or you leave the company and pay them back 20k for training.

    I think you should be ready to be in jail

    I worked at Gold Coast IT Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Got exposed to cutting edge technologies, received great support and mentoring which helped develop my technical abilities to where they are now.

    Cons

    They are moving to doing more inhouse development so opportunities to go traveling to different locations may be becoming fewer.

    Advice to Management

    Would be great if there were international opportunities to go work at rather than only within the US.
